There is no Indian household which does not preserve herbs and spices. The spicy food...is almost all an evitable taste everybody look for in an Indian House or restaurant. There is no Indian Food item which does not make use of spices. As it is more in South India, its counterpart in North India can be traced only in some states of Bihar, and Rajasthan. They are spicy food lover Besides giving taste to the cuisine, they preserve food for longer periods also. They are, though not all, good for digestion, Cold, and cough. Most of them are having antibiotic and antiviral properties. Some of the benefits that can be derived from various spices are: Cinnamon: good for diabetes as it stimulates natural production of Insulin. Cinnamon reduces nausea and gives relief from bloating stomach that may be due to indigestion. Basil: improves the immune system. Works effectively against anxiety and depression. Ginger: Good for cold and phlegm cutting when taken along with Sugar Syrup. Good for nausea also. Fenugreek: regulates the functioning of Insulin. Turmeric: works as a very good antiseptic.This is also a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent. This is used in the treatment of various chronic diseases like Arthritis and Cancer.

Certainly there ain't a house you would find in India that does not use spice in their food, we just can't imagine our foods without spices in it.

When compared to South India, people in N.India take less spicy food. The people of Rajasthan and Bihar like them more in their food. May I know where are you from?

@nitirrbb7 Is it Dahi-Misal you are talking about? I tasted it when I visited Mumbai long back. Curd will be excellent in Mumbai.

@saritflor If that is not spicy we add it to the dish separately. Do you know that people who prefer spicy food will be quite ferocious and brave? They keep up good health.They are good fighters and experts in martial arts.

I don't understand the title. Why 'hidden'? I don't understand that.

Many people take spices as spices without knowing the nutrients other than protein they contain. Hence, to many of them these are hidden...
